I will never forget his hilarious TV personality, "Percy Dovetonsils." This man was a genius in bringing real comedy to Trenton first, next New York, then Hollywood and the world. He is herewith being ensconced in the "NOTABLE PERSONS" folder in the Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection as well as this blog. His lovely wife Edie suffered a great loss when he died so prematurely in an automobile accident on a rainy night.

HI TOM....I'VE BEEN AWAY FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND WOULD LIKE TO WISH EVERYONE A VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR. SPEAKING OF ERNIE KOVACS BRINGS BACK MANY MEMORIES OF HIS YOUNGER YEARS. WE WERE BOTH BORN IN 1919 AND WENT THROUGH SCHOOL TOGETHER. HE WAS VERY ACTIVE IN JUNIOR 4 AND TRENTON HIGH AND OF COUIRSE WENT ON TO BECOME ONE OF THE BIG NAMES IN SHOW BUSINESS. MY SISTER LAW WAS HIS BABY SISTER IN THE 1920'S ON GENESEE STREET. I ALSO DELIVERED MAIL TO HIM WHEN HE LIVED IN MERCERVILLE FOR A SHORT WHILE. I RECALL ALL THE PROBLEMS HE HAD IN RAISING HIS CHILDREN WITH HIS FIRST WIFE. HIS DEATH WAS A TERRIBLE ENDING TO A GREAT HOLLYWOOD TIME. BEST REGARDS.
